Thanks for looking and commenting, Wayne.
Regarding the image of the apparition, I did indeed lean heavily on the
“freakiness slider” in Photoshop which resides in a hidden menu under “image.”
Requires a alt-ctrl-shift-rt clic, IIRC. It reduced the brightness and
contrast in the background which enhanced the mood.
Marnie and Kate had gone ahead while I studied and took a couple more shots of
the planter. It is rather new and I observed no signs of retrofitting. In my
estimation, it was designed and constructed to be as you see it.
Bending the sliders but not as much as AG, Mike
